  • Long drive, landscape beautiful but barren, prepare to make a track, with a different look, it's cold even in the summer, but a light jacket is enough, don't have much structure on base, only a stand, with a horrible bathroom, don't have a coffee Shop as in most tourist sites in the world, really well, but the view of the Aconcagua is worth. Another thing, there is little option for lunch on the way, we stopped at a restaurant where all stop, super crowded, poorly served

  • The Park is managed perfectly in my opinion. No garbage, not even cigarette butts are to discover. Everything in the Park must again be taken also on the return. You will not find even fecal in the high camps. Environmental protection takes precedence. Bravo

  • It is a must-see if you are in Mendoza... well in summer and autumn you should take a tour to get there, but red globes tour can give it you with security and peace of mind

  • Entry to the protected area that surrounds Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas. There are various trails you can walk here between 40 minutes and 2 hours that take you to a vantage point for some great photo opportunities of the mountain. There are buses that go here from Mendoza (see the park website) but it's far easier to get there in your own or a shared car. On the way from Mendoza you also pass through Uspallata (where 7 Years in Tibet was filmed) and the Puente del Inca natural bridge as well as a tiny ski resort with a rickety ski lift that can take you a bit higher up on to the mountain side if you want. The park closes an hour before sundown and all visitors must check in at the visitor center near the entrance and buy a ticket there.
  • Starting point for trek to Aconcagua Base Camp aka Plaza de Mulas.
  • Excellent! I went in late June and see the cross of the entrance to the park along with todaaaaa snow in the surrounding area and the Sun was spectacular! Even though I was only at the entrance of the Park it was majestic to watch that show.
